Legends at Sparks Marina - Site Map and Update
4/06/09 - Here is a site map of Legends at Sparks Marina, along with color coding showing what is leased, what is under construction and what is yet to be built, what has construction permits etc. It's quite interesting. Legends is not my favorite project, partly because it's in 'East Reno' as Mayor Cashell calls it, and this site is focused more on my immediate neighborhood, however I feel like maybe some of its criticism is unwarranted. It's taken a lot of heat from people on my site, and RGJ, calling it a strip mall, and likening it to Summit Sierra mall. When you look at the map below, other than a few detached parcels, it's definitely a compact mall with most of its stores aligned in sort of a Santa Monica Third Street Promenade set up. It may provide a better shopping experience than the widespread Summit Sierra. Just my two cents, and thanks to the reader who sent in the site map. Click the site map for high rez version. Also, for Legends fans out there, see some construction shots below the site map.

Is the lowes and JC Pennys Leases and confirmed to start construction? Permits in Hand?

According to this map, which is totally unofficial and unverified as of yet, it looks like JC Penney is not approved by the Planning Commission yet, but the Lowe's building is, but neither are under construction yet.

If they got rid of the Lowes pad, and the JC Penney pad, and they really built the hotel casino and remaining parts of the mall, this will be one of the best malls in the valley. I like the interior pedestrian corridor, it's almost like Park Lane Mall before they enclosed it. This is what the new Park Lane Mall people should have done with their new plans instead of making it all spread out.

The problem with Summit Sierra is not the site plan but the lack of diversified shopping. The Galleria in NE Sparks is an example of excellent shopping diversification.

KB, with the current economy most retailers are being very conservative. Thus far J.C.Penny has only signed a letter of intent. Lowe's closed on ten acres of land in Legends in December 2008 but does not plan opening their store until summer 2010.
